This poll was suggested by our member Lorska. You can all probably guess which choice will win by a landslide...

Is there even anything to discuss about this poll? If you think so, go visit our forums here:
http://www.mangaupdates.com/showtopic.php?tid=32282

You can submit poll ideas here (and try to keep them manga/anime-related):
http://www.mangaupdates.com/showtopic.php?tid=3903

Previous Poll Results:
Question: Would you marry a character from manga / anime?
Choices:
Totally! - votes: 6940 (42.4%)
Only if he/she is hot - votes: 1813 (11.1%)
No, I don't date fictional characters - votes: 4706 (28.7%)
Too busy for love - votes: 726 (4.4%)
Marrying ties you down. Would have 'fun' with instead - votes: 2191 (13.4%)
There were 16376 total votes.
The poll ended: February 25th 2012

Poll wasn't worded that well and was slightly vague, but you guys got the gist of it. Just remember, these are for fun!

I have discovered a great world & I would be stupid to leave it. I regret not knowing about it earlier, and am afraid I will not notice it in my next life. I will even teach my kids about manga & anime in the future, if I have any. A lot of stories are epic & can teach about life, yet I have many more to find.

One does not simply "abandon" reading manga. There is only periods of time when there is nothing interesting to read.

Exactly. I wish there'd been an option like that, though I can see how that would be difficult to phrase. In the future I might go a long while without reading any manga, and I might stop collecting manga, but that doesn't mean I've abandoned it. The word 'abandon' has such a sense of finality...

I agree as well, because even if the level does keep dropping, I'll always love those little jewels I already have in my collection. Yes, I may read less new stuff, but abandon manga? No way smile

I'd rather pick,
"Maybe someday, but i don't know when. And I will still read it sometimes"

Quitting manga is like saying I am going to quit watching tv or quit reading books. It has been so ingrained into my life from a young age I can't imagine myself without it.

I don't think anyone would willingly "stop" reading manga. I think it just happens. You develop different interests or life just gets in the way.
I've stopped reading manga/watching anime several times and for pretty long periods of time, but for some reason I always come back.
I think as long as there are resources and time, I will keep this interest for many more years to come.

Considering the fact that the world of manga is starting to whither, I wouldn't be too surprised if one day I would have to stop reading due to the lack of new material.

I don't think I'll ever quit but who knows. Reading manga is one of the things I enjoyed doing~

You might not need new material, revisiting old stories have their perks. Can't beat that nostalgia value, it always feels great to read an story again and relive those old memories.
